Love Islanders Are Obsessed With This £4 Cleanser

The islanders have nearly made it through a bottle of the stuff already, and it's only week three

We're only three weeks in to the latest season of Love Island and this year's contestants are already setting beauty trends. Gemma Owen has become the villa's latest brown lipstick icon - picking up where Faye Winter left off last year - using the £4.99 lip hero that came pre-stocked in the dressing room to apply her look. Tasha Ghouri made the case for beach waves in Sunday night's episode when she picked up a budget-friendly £25 hair tool and made light work of heat styling, and few can deny being influenced by Indiyah in the false lash department.

Never before has the Love Island dressing room been so generously stocked with beauty buys. Eagle-eyed beauty obsessives will have spotted myriad Fenty heroes on the shelves, No7 skincare, Eylure lashes and even cult classic brands like Dr. Jart. A few very observant viewers might also have realised that a particular breed of cleanser has clearly found favour with the group. The bottle in question has already made it into shot on numerous occasions, and on Sunday night appeared less than half full - quite a feat considering it's a micellar water and you need a splash on a cotton pad, at most, to start whipping away your make-up.

The identity of said cleanser? Meet Nivea's Energy Micellar Water, which you can shop at Boots now for as little as £4.66. It's made with three antioxidants - vitamin C, vitamin B3 and cranberry extract - all of which help to ward off dulling free radicals, the sort that occur in pollution, and brighten and strengthen skin. Its micelle technology works to attract dirt and make-up away from skin like a magnet, meaning you can whip it all away without leaving any residue on your skin. Follow with a gentle foaming gel cleanser to complete your cleanse.

Why do the Love Islanders love it so much? There's a lot to be said for a no-nonsense cleanser that removes make-up easily - no rubbing required - and without stripping your skin, especially when producers look to give them mere minutes to prepare for a date outside the villa or a party in it.
